    rxp hull repair question

    Hey guys, i recently inspected my hull and found a large chip out of my hull about 3x2 inches in size (directly on the bottom) and its down to the fiberglass. Its only about as deep as the black paint(gelcoat), should i be worried about this or should i keep on cruisin?

    Everything I've read if its gone through the gel coat then yes you should be concerned. But I'm still learning about all this stuff. West Marine sells a small gel coat repair kit for 40 bucks with the stuff to color match included.

    I wouldn't ride it without addressing the issue, the damage will most likely continue to spread. Prior to patching it, would be best that you ensure that it hasn't already spread, just take your knuckle and tap the surrounding area to see if there is any further delamination.
    If your all good then just feather the edges and patch then sand smooth.

    if its damaged 3x2 i would DA or sand out it out to at least a 6x6 area or so and patch that. make sure you use a marine epoxy.. i recommend west system. make sure it is good and dry...
